Within PowerApps it is easy to take data from almost anywhere. As a SharePoint developer you might store data in SharePoint lists, but what if your data is stored with documents then it’s a whole different story or maybe not, but you will find some hurdles on your way.

In my site I’ve got a Document Library with Resumes.In the  dialogue below I supplied the url of my site:

Then I’m trying to connect to my library, but when I try to connect to the site I only get the Choose a list but there are no lists or libraries found in my site by PowerApps .

I saw a few videos and posts telling me that it is possible to connect to libraries by supplying the library name directly, however I don’t seem to have that option available. I decided to create a custom list called testlist and now when I connect to my site I get my test list and a “Enter custom table na….” so that I can supply my library name.

Once I’ve connected to my library I can delete my list and all is working.
